The Sultans of String are taking their Christmas Caravan on the road and making Invermere their first stop. "We're going to be taking people on a world music tour of Christmas songs," said bandleader Chris McKhool. "The idea with Christmas Caravan is to bring the energy and the drive of the world music rhythms that we love to play to Christmas songs that people love to hear."

The Sultans of String will play a Greensleeves collaboration developed with a traditional Turkish string ensemble and will perform Jingle Bells and The Little Drummer Boy like you've never heard them before. Listeners will also be treated to the sounds of a Himalayan sleigh ride, African roots music, Quebecois fiddle tunes, rumba flamenco, ska, the symphony and more.

The Sultans of String caravan will arrive at Pynelogs Art Gallery and Cultural Centre on Thursday, November 29th.
